Happy 1st Birthday Hunter! | Virginia Birthday Photographer

I first met Hunter and his sweet family last June when he was 4 months old. I was so lucky to be able to see him three times over his first year and capture so many memories for his momma and daddy:)I love being able to see my Baby Planner babies grow from teeny little babies into toddlers, bursting with personality! Can you believe how much he changed over that first year?? Adorable, right??

Well, we had Hunter’s 1st birthday session this past February and I was so excited because it had been a long, long time since I’d had a little boy cake smash and I was dying to make a blue cake. Don’t get me wrong, I love pink and frilly things, but was ready for a little boy to smash up some cake:)And Hunter did not disappoint! He gave me one of my favorite cake smash images of all time:

And this one is pretty cute too:)

Of course, we also took some non-cake images and I love them just as much! Hunter was a very busy little guy at our session, constantly on the move. But looking cute the whole time! Happy Birthday Hunter:)

Happy 1st Birthday Natalie! {Rockville, Maryland Baby Photographer|

Natalie’s newborn session was my first session of 2011 and I can’t believe we are already celebrating her 1st birthday! This year went by way too fast! I was so excited to try out a new prop and knew Natalie would be a perfect model for it:)Isn’t she just the cutest?? I definitely had to work for her sweet little smiles but it was so worth it! Of course Big Brother Nicholas was a great helper and gave me some adorable shots too. Can’t wait for our next session Jen:)

Fran Barker - Oh my gosh, Tonya. You’re so talented and these kiddos are adorable. I wish I had a cake smash picture like that of my own kids. Well done.

Sunny Day {Bethesda, MD Toddler Photographer}

I have never been so happy to see the sun:)I had been waiting all weekend long to try out a new lens and get outside for some pictures. After a very dreary weekend the sun finally peeked back out on Monday. Yay! So I ran out while Caely was at school, picked up a super cute new outfit for her to wear and got my camera ready. I took her down to where I hosted my mini sessions this fall and we explored some new areas of the property. I think this is my favorite of my photo locations. She gave me about ten minutes before she was done but that seemed to be enough:)Since February is usually my slowest month, I think we will be heading out again in a few more days to try some new things and I can’t wait! I love having such a sweet little model and I’m so lucky she lets me dress her up and take her out in a field in February!
